Well today I finally gave it a shot, I wont know exactly what I got until about three weeks from now, but it sure looked and smelled good!

This is one of  the hangers I made for my smoker for summer sausage and the like, these worked really well for cheese too!

Looks-Great.gif you are going to love that smoked cheese. yours also took on some nice color.  I have only smoked with mulberry a few times, I don't know why I just haven't,  I have a several mulberry trees around the house and yard so it's not like I don't have excess to it. th_dunno-1[1].gif

Boy your cheese looks great, really nice color! I have to try the mesh bags one time, they really look like the way to smoke cheese.

How is the mulberry?  I now have some pellets that I bought and have the opportunity to buy some more as wood chips.  I usually use Hickory shag bark chips, but have others also.  Is it a strong flavor like hickory, or milder like alder?   Smoked cheese ROCKS!!!!

Mulberry is very mild, very similar to apple. This cheese has now aged about 5-6 weeks and is really getting into its prime...Good stuff!!
